it in this election. i worry about the future. not every candidate will have the particular advantages barack obama that had in his ability to raise money. side? >> there seems to be a growing consensus or perception that, unlike past democratic president, president obama has not left a ideological format of what it means to be a democrat. there is -- there has been a fear that with the party going so big and republicans moving to the right, there could be a battle for the soul of the party in the next four or eight years. do you see a post-obama age -- a happening? >> we just pushed the post- obama[laughter] >> i know. even in the next four years? >> what this president stands for -- i talked earlier about the fight we had. i was reading a book some of you may have read that was excellent about clarence darrow. he talked about some of the fights in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. during the gilded age and the progressive era. so much of the dialogue -- there were differences, but the fundamental philosophical debate was very much the same way we had in this election. do we believe that the
dead cat drone program, president obama sought re-election in a campaign where we finally got the sophisticated adult political debate we've longed for. >> it would be obamabaloney. >> romnesia. romney hood. >> big bird. >> thank goodness someone is finally getting tough on big bird. >> reporter: it was an epic battle of the world views. president obama launched 1,000 republican campaign posters when he said that -- >> you didn't build that. >> reporter: true to his word when he said that obama didn't create jobs. when a closed-door chat went public. >> there are 47%. >> reporter: and while all this was going on, joe biden was just generally enjoying himself. >> i always say what i mean. >> reporter: in the end, neither a dominant first debate -- >> i have no idea what you're talking about. >> reporter: nor a virtuoso convention performance by clint eastwood -- >> what do you want me to tell romney? he can't do that to himself. >> reporter: nor this -- >> you know what i'm saying! >> reporter: could carry him. so close to the oval office, romney now mostly hangs out at disney
't consummate with the american people. president obama just ran on a program of resisting some of the fundamental ways in which the republicans wanted to change medicare and raise taxes on people over $250,000. he won the election and people from the very red districts elected in the house simply have not adapted to that reality. >> let me go to jonathan chait and the primal scream and the election president obama won, but you wouldn't know this in washington. doesn't it feel sometimes like one side experienced maybe a different election? >> they did. for the house republicans, they don't have to worry about public opinion. the house republicans got fewer votes than house democrats, but the house republicans won anyway because the districts are drawn in such a way the vast majority of republicans are insulated from public opinion. this conversation we're having of what do the republicans have to do to win back middle america, that's not relevant to them. the only thing they have to worry about is a tea party challenger. that's the only way these guys are going to lose. that's p
to comment about the republican about-mr. obama being elected by 51% of people getting a handout. my husband works full time. we do not get food stamps, welfare -- did i get any of that. my husband is hard working. i work part-time job. we do not get handouts from the federal government. we elected president obama. i believe there has been a lot of misinformation deliberately put out about why this president was elected. i think we need to chase that. host: fifth let's hear from me now from midland, michigan. caller: i think it looks pretty good. i do not know how they are going to print out all of the new tax forms by the time we go to fill out our taxes. i am a republican and a bit less than $15,000 a year. i will pick up a beer can or a beer bottle when i am going down the street. most definitely. i have to collect them some days just to get by. as far as kicking the can of the road, i believe -- i do not believe in that. i think republicans have to face the fact that the conservatives always believe in a balanced budget. they always do. they have to scale down the monstrosity of a govern
at some of the most memorable presidential moments of this election year. >>> president obama and senate members will be here in washington tomorrow, but we'll be hearing crickets on the house floor. nbc news has learned the republican leadership has not given representatives the 48-hour notice to return to work, another sign of inaction on the fiscal cliff front. joining me now for our daily fix, mr. jonathan capehart, msnbc contributor and "washington post" editorial writer. jonathan, we're just six days away, no indication from house republicans that they are going to come back any time soon. the leadership has gone mum on that. we know there's not been communication between boehner and mcconnell, obama and boehner. are you amazed with this short amount of time to go there seems to be no sense of urgency on either side? >> am i amazed, given what we went through with the debt ceiling, no, i'm not amazed. i think there are forces here in this town that would like for us, sure people would like for there to be a deal, but going over the cliff on january 1st when there's this notion wher
of a compromise. >> the american people reelected president obama on election day. they also reelected a republican majority here in the house. in doing so they gave us all a mandate. it was not a mandate to raise taxes on families and small businesses. it was a mandate to work together to begin solving the massive debt that threatens our country's future. >> reporter: the house and the senate will both be back in session tomorrow and the president has said he expects them to quickly vote to pass legislation to avoid the fiscal cliff, if, he and the speaker are able to make a deal before it's too late. gregg: we'll be holding our breath. peter doocy, thanks. >> reporter: yeah. patti ann: the commander-in-chief also spent part of his holiday thanking the troops on a visit to a hawaiian military base. the president and first lady paying tribute to those here and abroad who risk their lives keeping us safe. he took time to honor their families as well. >> so many of you make sacrifices day in, day out on behalf of our freedom, on behalf of our security, and not only do those in uniform ma
to happen when president obama was elected to his first term. here is a look at some gun stocks. then, netflix falling victim to a service outage due to technical problems. not of its own making. blaming amazon. shibani joshi has the details. shibani: it is called the nightmare on christmas eve. you have had a nice meal and then you turn on the tv only to download a netflix video or television show and it does not work. what are you supposed to do, talk to your family, watch the christmas show for the 14th millionth time? 27 billion of the 30 million subscribers were without access. it was finally restored 12 hours later. now, the blame game gets kicked in. fingers are being pointed at amazon. it expands the technical problem and that led to the problems on netflix. "we are investigating exactly what happened and how it could have been prevented. it is amazon's problem. the web services division has experienced at least three different issues and blackouts in the past year. it is not just netflix that subscribes to it. it is other big websites, instagram, twitter, picturesque. there a
thought of what the congress said there? >> he makes a good point there. the pressure of the left. obama won a re-election and he learned that when he tried to negotiate in good faith with boehner and sort of move toward the middle and give concessions, criticized pretty sharply before maybe going too quickly to do that. i think he'll stand up longer this time. i don't think he's going to go lower. republicans of course want equal amount of spending cuts and the goal, the catch and how they do that. the president wants them to come forward with a plan. what do you want to cut? put it on paper. we'll see if that happens. won't happen in the next few days. i think again talking about more of a temporary measure. >> political fallout and as you heard congressman cummings there, meredith, he seems to think it will be -- fault aimed toward the republicans and won't it hurt both sides at the end of the day with the number of options on the plate? >> well, sure. i mean, if you look at congressional approval levels, excuse me, nationwide, i mean, people don't like congress. they don't like the f
there is to do and the future that lies ahead. >> that's president obama delivering his victory speech on election night. in the end the race wasn't even close. maybe mitt romney didn't even have a chance. his fellow gop contenders feasted on one of their own during the primaries. is it the american way that if somebody gives you a smack on the nose, you eventually have to smack them back? isn't it time now for you to accept that this negativity has pounded you into a position where much as you would like to keep it positive, isn't it time you got the old gingrich fist out and give romney a good ol' smack? >> harry truman in his great reelection campaign that gallup quit taking polls in mid september went after duey and the crowd would yell out "give 'em hell, harry" and he would yell back, "no, i just give them the truth and it hurts like hell." i think governor romney has done so many things that are indefensible in a republican primary -- it would be okay in a democratic primary but in a republican primary it would be indefensible. all i have to do is tell the truth, i'm not going t
election we learn something new and try to build on it. just like the obama campaign in michael's article say they built on the article in 2004 when they increased his turnout. and we never saw it coming. this is what you build on. and in their software program in 2008 which was terrible. then they build on that and build this software that worked this time around. >> even b mike huckabee couldn't have beaten this guy, huh? >> you tried to get me on this before. i think huckabee would have been a great candidate for us and i think we could have been beat obama because we would have been able to frame the issues differently. >> perhaps more authenticity. >> but thanks for trying. >> i want to hear you say it some day. great journalism. it's the stuff that i eat for breakfast. chip saltsman, happy new year to both you guys. >>> up next, the viral videos that define the political scene this past year. a look back. this is "hardball," the place for politics. she keeps you guessing. it's part of what you love about her. but your erectile dysfunction - you know, that could be a question of bloo
on the wealthiest of americans in because that's how president obama ran the campaign and got re-elected. >> you know what? i'm scratching my head. sometimes say to -- feeling sorry for speaker boehner, i guess. 25, 30 of the tea partiers primarily who just won't listen to the speaker and he thought that he had the votes or twist arms to get the vote and made -- bold announcement before to put the vote on the floor. and he could not do it. and so, i've listened to some of those 20 and 25 individuals and listened to their rational is what has been me a little worried about a deal getting done. busine does boehner get some leverage after january 1st? some were defeated in the election. does he get more leverage than now or not? i don't know. but i'm hopeful that maybe doing this break like i was having christmas dinner with some, they were having dinner with some relatives and telling them, go back, agree upon something because the country built upon compromise. >> if we get something small done in the short term, because the window of time left is so lessened, with the 113th congress coming in, d
turn, we're simply not going to see the democrats take them up on that because president obama since that letter has won the election and now we're looking at the possibility of a mini deal that would get enacted before january 1st but so far all we've heard are the sounds of silence in the negotiations. a senior white house official told me today when i asked was there any holiday season progress, back channel progress over the past couple of days, got a one-word reply, no. second, the democratic senate leadership says there's a 50/50 chance that we'd get a deal between now and january 1st, but they don't have any progress signs to point to in a tangible way. that's sort of a gut feeling that that will happen, and senate republican leadership aides said we haven't heard anything from the white house or senate democrats, so right now it's looking stalemated. there still is time for people to come back and pass a temporary kick the can kind of solution that would at least get us past january 1st for a month, two months, three months, but we've got to wait and see over the next couple
or not, but you knew exactly why president obama was running and running for re-election. with mitt romney, you had no idea. with mitt romney, it all felt like he's running to be president just because he wants to be president. he wants the house. he wants the plane. he wants the tank. the armor plated limousine. and that's about it. and so to hear that he had no desire to run, that someone who least likely wanted to be president that tagg has met in his entire life is disconcerting for those people who went into that voting booth and voted for mitt romney thinking that he really wanted to be their leader. >> so message to tagg and the rest of the family, ixnay on the talking. stop. it's over. jonathan capehart and susan delpercio, thank you. >>> next the president is headed to washington, d.c. we'll take you to hawaii. ♪ i love the holidays. and with my bankamericard cash rewards credit card, i love 'em even more. i earn 1% cash back everywhere, every time. 2% on groceries. 3% on gas. automatically. no hoops to jump through. that's 1% back on...

. in the years leading up to the presidential election, the focus seems to be on barack obama's roots and his family and the fact that he wrote his own biography. now in your book "american tapestry," you put the focus on michele obama. tell us about how you got started doing that and what inspired you. >> i was writing about the first lady and the first family for the new york times which was something of an unusual assignment. typically the first family is covered by the white house reporters who chased the president around on air force one and in the briefing room and write about the first lady or first family when they have time that there was a sense in 2008 at the new york times and other newspapers too that we might want to do things differently and this first african-american family living in this house, this white house bill in part by slave labor, with slave labor would be written about regeneration to come and we wanted it to be part of documenting and chronicling that story. in january, before the inauguration, one of my colleagues was writing an article about the president and hi

a longstanding debate, and i think it was very vital in this election. president obama can carry the banner high and proudly and well. the things he has done, whether it is health reform or education reform, making higher education more affordable, expanding pell grants, creating the consumer financial protection bureau. they are all aimed at one thing -- to create a economy in which we have a vital middle-class and our tax policy reflects that as well. opportunity is broadly available. i think that is solidly in the mainstream of the democratic party. we can have a debate about means of achieving that, and i think we have to do some soul- searching about how in the 21st centur we achieve those goals, and whether all the avenues and pathways that made sense 50 and 60 and 70 years ago are still valid today. many of them may be -- some may t. on the fundamental goals, he is solidly in the position of the democratic party, saw the lead progressive -- solidly progressive. i think that is a lot of what the election was about. >> in this election it has been observed that much of the advertising was p

of the election is that the republican effort to oppose anything and everything proposed by obama -- almost like a parliamentary party -- was not rewarded. the taking the debt ceiling hostage was not rewarded, calling the obama health care plan which was their own only a few years earlier socialism was not rewarded. that was not they have to begin to rethink themselves and, importantly, democrats will not automatically embrace the same tactics in opposition. so i think that was an important change that creates a new dynamic not that's going to solve our problems. there's going to be no sitting around the campfire in washington making nice to one another. but the possibility now exists for a real effort and a successful effort to deal with our most pressing problems. >> two familiar washington faces, thomas mann and norm ornstein, "it's even worse than it looks." this is booktv on c-span2. >> you've been watching booktv, 48 hours of book programming beginning saturday morning at 8 eastern through monday morning at 8 eastern. nonfiction books all weekend, every weekend right here on c-span2. >> so

whole that lives in its own bubble and things that we have seen that in the last election. they simply couldn't believe what they were saying that obama was probably going to win and that most democratic senate candidates were going to win. they were shellshocked in their own words, and if they cannot sort of accept the in critical reality, they are going to be in big trouble in the succeeding election. >> democrats became useless? >> well, they become useless and that they become the party of me too but less in that after three successive losses in the presidential elections in the 80's they kind of retool and become more friendly and many people think, and i happen to be one of them, for all but obama has excoriated as a kind of muslim and socialist that once, she's pretty much fulfiled george bush's third term in the national security matters. >> finally how does the middle class figure in to your thesis? >> the middle class figures and they are the ones that got shafted because there was a bipartisan move. clinton was president, the republicans mainly were running the congress when

demonstration passed before the last election and 90% of those hikes were delayed until after the president got himself reelected. then we have massive spending, $8 trillion in debt that obama's running up the next decade. republicans have several tools. right now we have very well leverage in the debate over the fiscal cliff because that stuff happens automatically but the idea of a debt ceiling increase, they've told obama if you want a trillion dollars in higher debt and he needs that eight times in the next decade, you have to cut spending a trillion dollars. >> here, i'll ask you again. 0 i'm a republican congressman and i signed your tax pledge to not raise taxes. if someone says here's a bill that says if you sign this we will cut taxes for 98% of americans. how could you say no? my point is, the administration is winning the war of optics. if they played it out this way, do they not win? >> well, they've won the war of optics so far because everything's been done in camera. it's been done inside closed walls. if c-span and fox and -- were able to videotape the negotiations, the kind of

've been in america, there have been two elections where one party has had far more financial firepower than the other. one was here in california with meg whitman, one was nationally, but romney clearly had more money than obama. in both cases both of the most money lost. >> isn't that great? >> what does that tell you? >> people are getting smarter. i don't like all this amount of money spent on this election. there should be a give -- campaign finance reform is very important. i hope somebody does something about it. you should have a give amount, equal amount. equal air time and that's it. you know? that idea of corporations being people, no, no. this is a country of, by and for the people, not of, by and for the corporation. you know. because i'm so against gmos, the modified food, and i'm so against lobbying, you know, by chemical companies lobbying, and that proposition 37, you know, was bad. and that's scary because the poison and, you know t poi, then in our foods and the air and they give discretionary polluters. we're having climate change. the republicans don't seem to want
. so what was a very popular idea with democrats before the election is no longer the case. so times change. it's complex. let's hope boehner's back in washington, obama's back in washington tomorrow. the players are there. harry reid is there. let's hope that they get there and for the sake of the country for the sake of our stability of our fiscal well, they get together on a plan that works. nobody will get 100% of what they want. hopefully somebody -- we get enough of what we want to keep the wheels turning. >> ana, do you think speaker boehner's leadership is suffering while this crisis continues? >> you know, i think a little bit of both to be honest with you. certainly he tried to get something from his caucus last week. that didn't work. that was not a strong moment for him. it was a moment of weakness. but at the same time, i think he looks like he's really trying. and it also paints the picture and makes it obvious that, you know, he's not just negotiating with president obama. he also has to then come back and sell to his own people, sell to his own caucus, which at points
